"My grandmother's name was Donnie and I often wondered about her name. Her sister's had beautiful traditional names like Laura and Audra. Now I know Donnie was a very popular girl name when she was born. I wish I had named one of my girls Donnie or Doni after my grandmother. She was the sweetest thing." Apr. 4, 2011:

"my name is Donnie gail. my mother liked the name Donnie. when I turned 18 two men showed up at my door because I did not register for the draft. I was placed in the boys gym in school and received magazines for men. also the bank I go to asked for id. they did not believe I was Donnie." Feb. 17, 2016:
"My given name is Donna, but I was always a bit of a tomboy, and Donna was way to "girlie". My mother started calling me Donnie and it stuck. I absolutely don't feel like a "Donna". I like having an androgynous name." Jun. 19, 2015:
"My name is Donette: lady of the house who rules and wears the crown! Sounds like a 'queen' to me. I go by Donnie! Love my name it's unique and it catches people off guard. And I do feel regal and confident." Dec. 23, 2014:
"My name is Donnie but spelled Donne. I am named after my father, Donald. I did not think that there were any other females named Donnie. I just wished that my mom would have spelled it Donni. It looks feminine." Oct. 16, 2014:
"My name is Donatella,but I have always been known as Donni. I really didn't think that there were many other women with this name and I'm pleasantly surprised." May. 18, 2014:
"My name is Donnie. People often think I am a guy if they have never met me People also often spell it wrong. It's not the best name in the world but I'm a verry different person and like to stand out so it kind of describes me!" Feb. 11, 2014:
"Well now.....that'll teach YOU not to pay attention when kids pray! Of scorue, my girls have been praying for a boy for.....three years? Hmm....God still does have a sense of humor, no?BBQ chips, huh? Wow...those are one of my off-the-list things--they actually make me sick! Go fig. Girl, I feel for you, I couldn't even handle one DAY of morning sickness. You're a brave woman. Oh, and apparently kidney infections are a great way to lose weight while pregnant too! I just finished my second round of antibiotics and I'm sure to get fussed at again because my 2-gallon-a-day of water habit has flushed six pounds from my system in a month's time! Wow."

"Occasionally used for girls between 1880 and 1930, and even less so for boys that time - but come the mid-20th century and the tables turned, the girl's name disappearing after the 1950s and the boy's name merely just peaking in popularity that time - hence the creation of the fictional male gangster Donnie Brasco (at least I think he's a gangster)."

"I am named "Donna" (so I've commented there too), but I go by the name "Doni" now -- it's pronounced like "Donnie" although spelled differently." Jun. 4, 2007:
